Vice President Inonge Wina
Vice President Inonge Wina

Government has confirmed that Vice President Inonge Wina is in India.

This follows revelations by Lusaka Times quoting highly placed government sources that Mrs Wina left Zambia on Friday for a scheduled medical review in India.

But Zambian Mission in India says Mrs Wina is in that country to promote foreign investment into Zambia.

According to a statement issued by First Secretary Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in India Bangwe Naviley, Mrs Wina commended the Mission for working hard to reach out to potential investors in India and countries of extra accreditation.

“I therefore urge Zambia Development Agency (ZDA) and other stakeholders to actively pursue all pending proposals,” Mrs. Wina said.

She said Zambia was a democratic country enjoying cordial relations with all the eight neighbouring countries and beyond.

“The country has a strong legal framework that protects private sector investment coupled with progressive banking systems,” the Republican Vice President said.

She was speaking when she held talks with Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga in Indore, in the Indian State of Madhya Pradesh.

And Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga said high level visits would complement the Mission’s efforts to attract investors to Zambia.

“President Edgar Lungu’s State Visit to India from August 20th to 22nd, 2019 followed by your visit as a Republican Vice President will undoubtedly attract credible investors,” Mrs. Kapijimpanga said.

According to a programme made available by Zambia High Commission in India, the Vice President would meet a company in Indore specialised in securing public infrastructure, address top businessmen in Indore and visit a factory.

  1. Yes we remember when the late Mwanawasa was said to be jogging in Paris, and the late Sata was said to be in Israel meeting the Prime Minister who unfortunately happened to be in the US at the exact time. Zambians are compassionate-tell us the truth so that we can pray for a quick recovery.Stop making our Veep travel all over the world at her age ,its bad for her health.

    • But the President himself just made a state visit to India recently! Interesting way to use govt resources.

    • They should have kept quiet about the reasons she was in India.

      The reasons being given are actually a lot worse. Lungu has just come back from India. What was he doing there?

      The way this government wastes money is not funny. And yet they cannot pay salaries of civil servants.

      How can any sane person support these thieves?

      I wonder if Mrs Findlay accompanied Mrs Wina in this trip…just asking.

    • Farewell madam. Very shameless that you cant establish a sustainable health system to sustain all Zambians and you have to come back as cargo when you run away to your health treatments and leave ordinary people with no options.

  2. When the head of state is on trip, the nation knows, and not with the vice president? Please do the same to avoid speculations

  3. Yeah, foreign investment promotion (maybe) but also with a view to get herself checked out by the medical personnel in that country.

  4. We believe you. We also believe that there is load shedding because of global warming, inflation is only 7% and Bill No. 10 is there to help opposition to kick out this bunch of corrupt incompetent and thieving liars

  6. Why go in secret of its an official trip. It’s so obvious she is there for personal reasons most probably medical.

  7. How old is our old lady?

    We know power can be sweet, but time for this sweet Grandma to stand aside and enjoy what’s left of her time in quiet and solitude. The abrasive nature of politics is surely taking a tore on her frail soul.

    Can someone near her whisper it into her good ear please.

  8. We in upnd will ensure to bring about legislation which requires any public office bearer to foot the bill of their burial if they had prior knowledge ,of the health issue that leads to their death, before taking up public office. We believe this will save the tax payer from footing the bill of sick greedy politicians

    • PF must bring about a legislation that anyone wanting to be a president must not be involved in money laundering and must not have money in tax haven countries. PF must also pass a legislation that anyone trying to become president should not do corrupt practices of buying food for the people, Kekekeke!

  9. This is quite a pathetic attempt at shielding the real truth from the populace – again. The acceptance that she is in India only came after the revelation by Lusaka Times. In normal circumstances, there would have been a ‘fanfare’ about the undertaking of an ‘Investment’ trip. Why wasn’t it announced? ECL was there recently, apparently signing all sorts of MOU’s and inviting investors.

    Firstly, what’s the fear? We are all mortals. Is it to dissuade internal party power political maneuvers or a national ‘backlash’ that will cost votes?

    Secondly, a honest transparent debate involving the ‘GREAT LEADER’ is required at this moment, in relation to the state of the health system and the health needs of ‘ordinary’ Zambians.

  10. PF administration thrives on lies. It will catch up with them soon.

    This is a ridiculous insult to our collective intelligence.

    Visit this site, this is Sata screaming as carcinoma cancer had him by his bollocks, sweating the lumpen. And yet we were being told Sata was fine and working hard for the nation, until the bigoted fool kicked the bucket! I hope its not the same story repeating itself all over again. So Dora Slit, please dont tell us Inonge is dancing “Siyemboka” in Madras because we will not buy it this time.

  14. When she comes back , tell her that GRZ has her full retirement benefits so she can take some time to enjoy with her family n great ,great grandchildren . Life can be long but it always looks short for the beholder. I can’t believe I have 46 years behind already.
